at a rough guess id say $1300 for panels paint and fitting, has the bottom ball joint failed too?

rip off the bar, guard, bonnet, and guard liner/carbon canister and see if theres any skirt damage... doubt there would be but with a hit like that theres always a chance.

id strip most of the front end off to properly evaluate whats happened, then hit up the wreckers for panels and what ever else is needed, that color isn't exactly rare so there should be a few around to get parts off of, shouldnt be too expensive as a DIY job depending if there is anymore 'unseen' damage.

100% the k frame will be f**k...

had this exact damage on one of my cars...

needed kframe, rack tie rod arms, lower arm bent too, upright (rplaced whole thing beacuse lower ball joint was f**k)....and im fairly sure mine didnt hit as hard as yours has...

all parts can be had fairly cheaply...if youve got space id buy another car for parts and use them
